HS2 will be the UK’s new high speed railway, providing fast, frequent and reliable services, connecting eight of our largest cities. It will be a catalyst for growth across the country, and is the biggest and most ambitious infrastructure project in Europe.
And we need your help to build it.
HS2 Ltd will visit 11 regions across the UK to meet a broad range of companies to discuss the opportunities that will be available. We want to explain the types of work on offer, let you know how to get involved, and advise how to put yourself in the best position to win work.
